    Hi, all,

    I bought a USA wii with 3.3U menu, couple of days ago.

    I also saw & downloaded NTSC-USA wii games on RapidShare/MU site (links from WIISO.)

    In order to play those games, which things I need to do then?
    • Do I have to patch those downloaded NTSC-USA ISOs?
    • Do I have to install Homebrew first?
    • Do I have to switch back to 3.2 menu too?
    which is essential? Thanks a lot, guys!

    Thank you Screamq3

    I checked two posts, which requires all homebrew channel installed first, cause I don't have the twilight game.

    Is there some alternative way to just patch NTSC-U ISOs to make the game work?

    First thing I was thinking. RapidShare can't count, technically because it doesn't allow you to search.

    As for your questions, for softmod:
    1-Yes, I believe you do have to patch them. You also should change the region to NTSC-U (if their not already), and remove any updates. For the region changer, search for RegionFrii and for the update remover, search for WBB (Wii Brick Blocker). Here are the links:
    RegionFrii
    Wii Brick Blocker (WBB)
    For softmod, you don't have to really do this but I recommend that you do, or risk getting your Wii bricked. Upto you.

    2-For the softmod, yes, you do have to install the HBC (Homebrew Channel) which will allow loaders to be downloaded. Then you insert the game through the loader.

    3-With the softmod, you'll have to downgrade to 3.2U anyway (and it's recommended anyway because it's the best firmware for the Wii so far, for softmod). And this will allow you to install Starfall.

    Hope that helps. [​IMG]

    no you dont have to patch them, the softmod loaders have force pal and force ntsc option. as for the updates if you just install starfall on 3.2, that has a feature built in to skip disc updates (option 6 i think) good luck
